"what you call linux, witch is called a linux distribution, is in fact gnu/linux, or as i started to call it...

Just high-fived my cat's rear paw while she was licking her butt, as one does, and I don't think such a combination of exasperation and long-suffering patience has ever been shoehorned into a single look by any other creature on this planet

If you think a single person is just too small to make a difference, you should read up on Jadav Payeng, the "Forest Man of India".

When he was 16 he started planting trees on a deforested sandbar. He made it a habit of planting at least one tree every single day - over the course of the last four decades.

His forest now encompasses an area of about 1,360 acres / 550 hectares and is home to not only over one hundred elephants, but also monkeys, tigers and deer.

To all #Rust programmers on #Linux that want to use the kernel's new pidfd feature to asynchronously await on many child processes from the same thread -- reliably -- I've released the [pidfd] crate, which achieves precisely that.

Testing would be highly welcome!
